There was perhaps no better visionary to walk through the doors of the President's office at Nintendo than Satoru Iwata. He claimed on multiple occasions that he was not a businessman nor a game designer first but a gamer. This is what separated him from the President's that preceded him.   Join the dudes as they sit down to talk about the man Iwata and his legendary role in Nintendo and gaming history.

This week's game is a pick by Dude Joe who chose Adventures of Dino Riki. A lesser known title to grace the NES, Adventures of Dino Riki, is a difficult but fun addition to any D-padder's collection. It is a game that plays a lot like other Hudson Soft makes like 1942 but features a caveman instead of a plane. While this game is sure to cause some frustration (OK,...

Do we really need to say anything else? Probably not, but we did sit down and discuss this game quite a bit in this latest episode. Also, as is our latest style, we did a high score challenge.

Why would the Dudes be talking about this one? Shovel Knight might be a new game, but it's brimming over with classic NES nostalgia. Much like the 2 Dudes and a NES podcast, Shovel Knight is a true love letter to the Nintendo Entertainment System. Justin and Michael truly feel like it needs to be...

This week the dudes get their mythology on with Kid Icarus. Kid Icarus was a famous game that was brought into the gaming world by none other that Nintendo's R&D 1. Much like other games brought to the NES from R&D 1 (ahem.... Metroid), Kid Icarus brings a lot of fun, frustration and ultimately enjoyment. In the show the guys talk about their experiences playing this game and their many frustrations. They also bring in many tangents as usual. The show also features a few embarrassing...

Have you ever wanted to know the story of how Justin and Michael met? Or how their relationship flourished? No? Really?? Well, the dudes are going to tell you anyway. Michael is in the process of moving and has all of his NES stuff packed away. No games to play. No accessories with which to tinker. But instead of skipping this week's episode, the dudes have decided to record an episode about mostly nothing. Enjoy! Want to hear an episode about an NES game? Try one of these gems...

The Dudes are joined this week by honorary Dude Hickman. The three dudes discuss the obscure (yes, Aaron Hickman is a fan of the obscure, like his podcast) game StarTropics. StarTropics is a game that for those that experienced it, was loved. What's not to love? Yo-yos? Awesome. Baseball equipment used as weapons? Again, Awesome. Plus the game carries with it a fun time that is reminiscent of Zelda. Although Dude Justin had to make an early exit this week, Dude Michael and Dude Hickman dive...

The dudes are joined this episode by Rob Luther of many podcasts fame ( Turtle Flakes , Genesis Gems , The Retro Junkies Super Show , etc.) and he really helps Michael out in the quest department. He also cheats at quizzes... hoser. BATMAN is a beloved game by many a D-Padder and it's surprising that it hasn't been recommended yet.

The Dudes may not have been on their A game when it came time to do the episode on Faxanadu but they attempt to redeem themselves this week as they review one of the more famous games for the NES. And redeem, the Dudes do, as they talk about this all time great. Mega Man holds a spot in all NES fans' hearts. As one of the first side scrolling shooters with graphics that were impressive for the NES, Mega Man has become one of the most beloved games in history. This also sparked one of the most...

With a game library as massive as the NES, there will come a time when the Dudes discuss a game that not even they are experts on. Never fear! The Dudes search far and wide to bring in others that know the game well so that the listeners will not suffer (we think). This week the Dudes talk about the RPG Faxanadu and they bring in special guest Aron Robison to help them out. Aron is a Faxanadu Guru and he sits down to talk with the Dudes about this game. While the Dudes have never got to the end...

Tecmo Bowl is hands down one of the greatest football games to ever come out on any system. Be sure and listen to the dudes gush about it for a solid 70 minute run time.

This week the dudes discuss a famous boxing game. However, this game is more famous for what is was not rather than for what it was. Power Punch II was to be a follow up to the famous Mike Tyson's Punch Out. However, due to some legal troubles, discussed in the show, Nintendo pulled the plug on using Mike Tyson. Nintendo also outsourced the game leading to poor quality from a company that understood cricket more than the sweet science. This week's episode has a little of everything being that...

There is no other character that signifies Nintendo than Mario. Mario has been the signature character (Hero) for the company from the early days. However, throughout that time, Mario has worn many hats, as one might say. He has carried many different jobs, and his success varies from job to job. This week, in the 25th installment (hold your applause please) of 2 Dudes and a NES, the Dudes take a break from the game by game style to talk about the top five jobs held by the beloved Mario.

Through the years many video games have been inspired by board games. However what about a board game solely created for a video game system? Leave it to the guys at Rare to be innovative and bring the board game to the NES, but they went a step further with the creation of Anticipation "Nintendo's first video board game." The Dudes sit down to talk about Anticipation this week a little. We must say a little because there is plenty of tangent talking in this episode. But how can you...

This week the Dudes dive into a Nintendo black box classic in Wrecking Crew. Brought to the NES by the famous Nintendo R&D1 crew, Wrecking crew brought an old school arcade feel directly into the living rooms of many. Wrecking Crew is one of the earliest games that Mario, Luigi and perhaps Wario make an appearance. The Dudes speculate that there was either a furlough in the plumbers' union or a strike that lead to the need for Mario and Luigi to explore the field of demolition. Despite the...

Certainly one of the more bizarre and beloved games the Dudes have discussed, is this 1987 Lucasfilms Games classic. Maniac Mansion was ported to the NES in 1990 with a few infamous changes. The Dudes dive into the history of this game including the changes Nintendo forced upon the designers in order to get the game published (and one that made it through at first). This game infuses comedy and B grade horror film themes in the game that the Dudes certainly appreciate and sure the listeners do...

And they promise to not make too many burger references.

The Dudes not only talk about TWO games this week but also throw in an accessory as well. Well, the game was technically two games in one cart but hey it's all the same, right? The Power Pad is quite possibly the most under utilized accessory for the NES. While the premise of the Power Pad was awesome and worked great there were not a lot of games that were developed for it. The Dudes discuss this justice to the much cooler Grandfather to the Dance Dance Revolution pad. One of the few games...

When the Dudes said they intended on playing the good, the bad and the ugly on the NES, they were not kidding. This game comes from the gallows of the bad game repertoire. Deadly Towers was brought to the NES from Japan by the company made more famous by their edutainment games, Broderbund. Perhaps they should have stuck to what they did best. As an action adventure game this one just did not stand up to the quality of other games of the times like Zelda and Wizards and Warriors. While the...

While most, (sans one sporting a ginger colored beard that may be awesome) have not heard of this game, the dudes hope to bring it into your NES experience. The game has an awesome premise, being that you are a lone fighter against an empire that is trying to build up and take over the world. Oh, and these folks happen to go by the name...

Jaws… the one NES game that has consumed more of the dudes’ collective time than any other game. Why didn’t they spend their wonder years playing co-op Contra? Why didn’t they compete in some intense high score competitions with Donkey Kong? Who knows. Maybe if they knew what they were doing they would have spent less time on it. However, Jaws holds a place in the dudes’ legacy whether it is a good game or not. Be sure and listen to this week’s episode as Justin and Michael discuss...

This one was requested by a listener, but the Dudes have been itching to talk about it since the inception of this show. Metroid has one of the most storied histories of all the NES games. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun to play. The music is so creepy that some might call it a survivor horror game. Inspired by  Alien , it is easy...
